Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
Today is Pancake Day and in these parts we have pancake races. Specifically the Great Spitalfields Pancake Race. We didn’t race (sorry) - but we did film! Have fun tonight if you’re staying in and cooking - or going out.
In times of such economic gloom, it is up to the world’s finest minds to come up with groundbreaking, bold solutions that may get us out of this predicament.
Fear not. The clever economics students in Lehigh University, Pennsyvania, US have answered the burning question that is on everyone’s lips: “How much would it cost to build the Death Star?”.

What is it with our fascination with chilli? Chilli is literally ‘so hot right now’ - and all over the news. “World’s hottest chilli leaves two in hospital” bleated the Telegraph last year. The ‘Infinity Chilli’, grown in Lincolnshire is reportedly even hotter than chilli used in hand grenades by the Indian military. (Did you even know hand grenades used chilli?). Oh wait - actually Gerald Fowler’s Naga Viper chilli is even hotter. “Hot enough to strip paint” boasts Fowler.Read more
We’re really loving illustrator Dan Hipp’s (AKA Mister Hipp) work who “maintains his zombie survival training by watching monster movies and coaching Water Polo in Southern California”. This Mario Kart / Drive combo is awesome.
The Westminster Kennel Club Annual Dog Show in New York is basically ‘Fashion Week’ for dogs. Look at the little doggies in this video. Preening, pampered, prima donnas each and every one. If they could talk, they’d be asking, “Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?”.
Wow. OMG. We’re all looking OUT OF OUR WINDOW….Is that Kanye West? Is that Jay Z? Is that Beyonce? Wooooo!! The kings of hop hop are apparently in Shoreditch RIGHT NOW. There are tonnes of hipsters mooching about so this must be true. This is why we love Shoreditch. [Via Londonist].
Shed has designed numerous fantastic Firebox products, including the hilarious ‘Sound Machine’ and the book, ‘What Every Man Thinks About Apart from Sex’ which contains 200 completely blank pages. So we thought we’d get a little more insight into what makes this guy tick. Ready Shed?Read more

This little fella has totally got the ping-pong moves down. At just 18 months old he has already perfected his slam-downs better than most of us have in the office (and we’re top level. Seriously). We would usually suggest somebody his size starts out on our mini table tennis table, but he’s already too good for that. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
